    You have this rigt wing poster boy along with the likes of Ariel Zilber who sees signs of the Moshiach in the late Kahane. The roots for this kind of racist thought pandered as a love for Jerusalem have been around a long time and no one should be surprised that they have taken root in Israeli society. It is an ideology that is ideologically comitted to the belief that Israel will always be alone, "kol haolam negdeynu", that peace with Arabs is not only not desireable but impossible. It is an ideology that disdains empathy as something christian and believes that in their heart of hearts only Jews deserve to live in the Land of Israel since this is their divine right and theirs alone. Such a great similarity to the Muslim fundamentalists that this singer and his ilk finished off in the Machpelah with their gibor, Goldstein. Love of neighbor pertians only to Jews and love of Jerusalem means a Jeruslam with the goyim. This is the best the reelgious right has to offer and what an abortion they have become.
